Body Types by lisannexd Body Types by lisannexd
Tried drawing different body types. I really like the middle one. She was fun to draw. :)

Something I forgot to add. I got the inspiration from here [link] (And I realise that the middle one looks a lot like the one in kinkeis drawing but that was mainly because I really like her design.)

There's good variety here, I should use this as a reference when drawing multiple girls. It'd be weird if they all had the same body structure.

What is the best way to be good at drawing? I'm good, but my dream is to become even better, I train every day. Can you give me the means to become even better at drawing?

I'm so very sorry for the late reply but I needed to think about what the answer to that could possibly be. Except for the usual practice, practice and more practice. 
And I honestly think there IS no better answer. Just practice as much as you can, use a fuckton of references, observe and don't stop no matter what! The last thing is (for me anyway) the most important one. Because I gave up drawing for myself a couple of months ago. And I kept saying to myself that everything I drew looked like shit and that I shouldn't try anymore because of it. I am currently facing the consequences of that. And I can promise you this, it's incredibly hard right now to keep drawing instead of just giving up again. So unless you know you're going to stop drawing forever, don't stop.

I hope I could help you. If not I'm so sorry.

this is really good! when i draw characters they're usually either tall, average or short. I just end up doing that somehow.

I am totally the 2nd one XD i'm a bit short and slim like that :D

I'm not very good at drawing guys so I can always use the practice. Might try but that'll probably be something that I'll do when I finish some other things first. So it will take a while.

I personally think this piece is great! (:
I also love the poses and their hairstyles.

Although I think it's kind of rude of others to say that the 3rd one is fat - everyone is beautiful, no matter if they're chubby/fat.
Heck, it could be said I'm something between 1 and 3. x3

It's a good idea and I can see that you're starting to try to make different body types. Sure, like others have said, they all end up looking like an hourglass figure with varying types of body fat, but you have to start somewhere right? Now you know how to successfully add/take away body fat for different characters, that's good! I personally like this piece, it's a good depiction of different bodied people and you could easily design them as characters and we could tell them apart from each other, which is a pretty big accomplishment. I'm sure as you start messing around with body shape and draw more varied shapes it will be easier to make more variety.

As a suggestion, maybe try googling "my body shape" and seeing some of the mainstream examples of different body shapes. Then you might have a guide to help you start messing with proportions. Making body types different is hard, I know. You'll get there!

P.S.
Here's a cool body type tool, you select the various areas and the estimated height of the person, and it will give you a body type! A cool demonstration of how the different features interact!

Thank you for the great advice! :D I noticed while drawing this I still got kind of stuck with the way I usually my bodies. Big breasts, tiny waist and wide hips. A typical hourglass shape. So I tried to get away from that as much as possible while still being stuck with how I always draw them. Next time I'll definitely focus more with different body types. Rectangle, triangle, apple,... Or one body type at a time but experimenting with weight and height for even more variety.
And thank you for that link. I now finally know what my own body type is. And it will definitely help me creating my own characters.

Remember that this is a sketch. A lot of people draw spheres for breasts when sketching.
I imagine they would be more natural/more defined if this were ever finished.
